If you need to work out, then you only need to simplify. There are no equal signs and hence, you cannot solve for x.
That's about all you can do...
hi,
i need to work out this fraction:
3/2x-1 - 4/3x-1
i can do the first part and worked it out and you get a quadratic equation as shown in my picture:
when i type in to my calculator 36-4x6x6 it =-108?
-108 doesn't work!!! why is it coming up with this? have i started my quadratic equation wrong?
help would be much appreciated!!!!
thanks!

Hi andyboy179,
What do you mean "work out this fraction". What is there to work out? And there is no equation here.
And, please use grouping symbols (parenthesis) to show us what's in the denominators of your fractions.
Restate the problem exactly the way it's stated in your book or worksheet or whatever.
No it does not. You are subtracting x and 1 from both sides of the equation.
subtract 1 from both the sides:
that leaves you with:
now you subtract x from both the sides. this gives you:
which gives you:
therefore
************************************************** *************
Note:
In the first box, you are subtracting x from -5x. In the second box, you are adding x to -5x. This is where your confusion lies.
If you still dont understand it, please refer to your books/notes/instructor to avoid trouble in the future.
Please refer to post Number 2 by Unknown008how did you get ?
your question was
then Unknown008's method (which you've been told multiple number of times) takes you :
multiplying both sides of this equation by .gives you:

Have fun!
